Hi Pierre-Luc,

Thanks for the feedback! So glad to hear it works for you.

We're not building src.rpms at this point since the source code is 100% identical to our released
source tarball:

The RPM files are in our packaging repo:

If you feel up to submitting a pull request to enhance our build process to generate srpms,
I'll definitely review it for inclusion.

Subject: Re: CentOS 2.0 packages - beta test ready!

Hi Joan, 

I would like to say thanks for these packages. 

We have been testing the CentOS 7 package for 2 weeks now, everything is working fine so far
and the deployment is so much easier with the package. 

Is it possible to get the Source RPM (src.rpm) ?

Good news, everyone! 

Apache CouchDB 2.0 RPM packages are now available for beta testing. I 
have build CentOS 6 and 7 variants, since these are the most commonly 
used RPM-based distros. 

The RPMs can be downloaded from: 

*Developers*: The nitty-gritty details are at 

*Users*: Would you like to test these CouchDB packages? Here'show! 

1. Install the pre-requisite packages: 

# yum install libicu python-progressbar python-requests 

2. Download the appropriate RPMs for your machine: 

(CentOS 6) 
# wget 
# wget 

(CentOS 7) 
# wget 

3. Install SpiderMonkey 1.8.5: 

(CentOS 6) 
# rpm -i js-1.8.5-7.el6.x86_64.rpm 

(CentOS 7) 
# yum install js 

4. Install the provided CouchDB package: 

(CentOS 6) 
# rpm -i couchdb-2.0.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm 

(CentOS 7) 
# rpm -i couchdb-2.0.0-1.el7.centos.x86_64.rpm 

5. Launch CouchDB in the usual way: 

(CentOS 6) 
# /etc/init.d/couchdb start 

(CentOS 7) 
# systemctl start couchdb 

6. Relax! CouchDB is running and ready for your data. You will need to 
create the _users and _replicator databases yourself; this package 
attempts no auto-configuration (unlike the Debian packages.) 

$ curl -X PUT localhost:5984/_users 
$ curl -X PUT localhost:5984/_replicator 

These beta RPMs will be removed by 2017-05-15, or once an 
official repository becomes available. The location of the official 
repository has not yet been decided. 

Only tears will result. 

Looking forward to your feedback!
